It’s a double feature! JusticeAid is excited to invite you to cheer on young filmmakers, watch their winning films, and hear how they are using their art to inspire the vote and promote civil rights. We hope you can make it to both events.

JusticeAid leverages the community-building power of art and music to transform awareness into action in the fight against injustice. We organize arts events and public forums to educate people about key civil rights challenges, and we raise funds to support key organizations addressing these issues. JusticeAid advances its efforts by leveraging our Board of Directors’ diverse lived experiences of race, sex, religion, age, and sexual orientation, among others.
